    We arrived about 30 minutes early for our reservation thinking we could wait at the bar . Unfortunately it was really packed. So we admired their huge wine room and Broncos memorabilia til our table was ready. Dinner was delicious , made my wife try escargot for the first time and it was surprisingly good. They even decorated our table with rose petals and our waiter brought out a complimentary slice of raspberry chocolate cake for dessert Wich was really good.overall excellent dinner.

    We celebrated a special birthday here on a Friday night. A palpable energy, vibrant bar scene and friendly, highly competent staff greet you when you walk in. We were whisked to the booth near the fireplace (requested via our Open Table reserv). Bill, our waiter, was fantastic. Following perfectly made cocktails, we dined on Blue Point oysters, chilled Caeser salad (WITH optional fresh anchovies, natch), the signature bone-in filet, fabulous Colorado lamb chops and yummy sides, washed down with a lovely Pinot Noir. As always, portions were unbelievably generous, requiring take home boxes. We were absolutely, happily satiated, when Bill presented the hugest ever 'slice' of chocolate layer cake, rounding out a superb evening!!

    My 10 year old son tasted leftovers from my visit to Shanahans the night before with my friend. He exclaimed, "This is STEAK!?" There is nothing like the taste of their steaks. I've visited every steakhouse in the Denver area from downtown to Cherry Creek to the Tech Center. There is no better filet mignon for purists who like their plain steak. The service is impeccable. The timing is perfect: It's nice and well-paced when I'm with my girlfriend and much quicker when I'm with my son who wants to eat and go. The GM always stops by when I'm with my son. We visit when his teams wins a basketball championship so he knows congratulations are in order and never fails to get my shy boy talking. The food is consistently delicious. Worth it

    Dined on 10/10/2014
    We go here frequently and really think that this is the best restaurant in town right now. The food is insane and the atmosphere is simply beautiful. Why the three stars? Our reservations were at 7:30 and we were sat at 8:10. This is terrible and creates an awkward way to start an evening with your dinner companions. Again, we eat here a lot and there have been times in the past when we have waited a couple of minutes for a table but this was crazy. Finally, usually when they are over booked, they get you a glass of wine or something, this night we were just sitting around with all the other people who had "reservations". Greed plain and simple, trying to squeeze a couple more diners into an already packed restaurant.

    We made reservations almost a month ahead of time and just noted in the comments it was "our first wedding anniversary." We got to the restaurant a few minutes early and the hostess had our table ready. The table was littered with beautiful rose petals. TO make it better, our waiter, Julius I believe, knew it was our first wedding anniversary and they made the night so much more spectacular. Thank you for the attention to detail and for making us feel special in your restaurant.. it was a great experience and we will certainly be back..

    Reservation was for 8p.m. & when we arrived was told it was 8:30. No apology or any effort made to get us in. Oysters we had in the bar were fantastic. The bone-in ribeye & 8oz. lobster tail were underwhelming for $55 & $39 respectively. The au gratin potatoes were the worst I've ever had & mushrooms were nothing to write home about. Let the waiter know the potatoes were awful. He didn't offer to take off the bill, just would we like him to bring something else. Not when we are completely finished with dinner. Not what I expect for the money. Won't be back-too many other fine steakhouses in the area.

    Had another great meal at Shanahan's with some friends. My friend ordered the filet as Medium and it came as Medium Rare. The thickness of the cut needs to be taken into account, when cooking this cut of meat. For this reason, I ordered mine Medium Well and it came out perfect (for me). The waitress disappeared after the meal was brought to the table and we needed to send the steak back for more cooking. When it came back, it looked well done (almost like a piece charcoal)--overdone. Overall, this was a good meal.

    Our party of 4 thoroughly enjoyed our celebratory dinner on a busy Saturday evening. The oysters were ice cold (perfect!) and were even loosened from the shell for easy removal. Our filets were cooked perfectly and arrived on a scorching hot plate so that your steak was warm while you ate it. Side dishes were also piping hot and delicious. For the birthday girl, they provided a complimentary HUGE slice of chocolate cake that was big enough for to share. We found it odd that so many diners were "down dressed" in shorts with untucked shirts etc. Unfortunately, we felt rushed, as if they wanted to flip the table. Lobby area was so crowded when we left and people would not move to allow us out; maybe they need to perform crowd control.

    Before eating at Shanahan's I had never heard of a bone-in filet but was delighted to try something new. It was perfectly cooked (though I expected as much) and the flavor was outstanding. The waiter learned it was our anniversary and sprinkled rose petals on our table and gifted us with a large slice of chocolate cake. What a wonderful way to make us feel welcome. We'll definitely be back!
